Immigration

Boughton Law’s Immigration Group is vastly experienced in the complex and constantly evolving area of immigration law, offering expertise to both corporate entities and individuals.

Areas of Expertise

From obtaining work permits for executives, managers, technical staff and trades to assisting with the acquisition of their permanent resident status count on our experienced team for sound advice on your corporate immigration strategies. The companies we serve operate in a broad range of sectors such as construction, engineering, film and television, information technology, mining and transportation.

For companies and their personnel involved in cross border transactions we provide advice on the full spectrum of both Canadian and American immigration issues. Clients can expect diligent legal counsel about visa requirements, the issuance of temporary resident permits for Canadian entry and waivers of inadmissibility to the United States.

We assist investors seeking permanent entry into Canada on suitable federal or provincial business programs to facilitate your relocation plans. Once you have successfully established your business, we guide you through the process of renewing your permanent resident card, the maintenance of residency obligations and, if desired, obtaining citizenship.

Your Benefits
By partnering with us, you will not only gain in-depth legal insights from a former Department of Citizenship and Immigration Officer but also benefit from the unique cross border expertise of one of our immigration lawyers who is licensed in both California and British Columbia.

Take advantage of this full range of legal services as we leverage our expertise with colleagues in the Business, Employment and Tax Groups to help pre-empt any issues that may arise. Boughton Law’s membership with Meritas, a leading global alliance of full service law firms in over 230 markets worldwide, also enables us to draw on international expertise and provide referrals to clients requiring foreign immigration experts around the world.
